Missoulian: Montana World Affairs Council to hold discussion on global refugee crisis

The Montana World Affairs Council and the Qatar Foundation International have scheduled a discussion and lecture presented by Haley Smith, the founding director of Lifting Hands International.

“The Refugee Crisis: A Discussion of Global Importance” will be at 7 p.m. on Feb. 23 in the DoubleTree Hotel ballroom.

Smith, who has an extensive background in Middle Eastern language and culture, founded Lifting hands International after visiting refugee camps in Greece, where she witnessed hundreds of innocent people fleeing from war zones.

“We cannot afford to stand by and watch,” Smith said in a press release. “Will we be willing and ready or will we close our eyes and pretend it’s not happening?”

Tickets to the lecture are $5 for Montana World Affairs Council Members, $10 for nonmembers and it will be free for students.
